Registration of Food Barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) Variety HB 1307 for Mid and High Altitude Areas of Ethiopia
AbstractSix-rowed food type barley, HB 1307, was developed by Holetta Agricultural Research Center (HARC) from a cross between a landrace line and exotic germplasm (Awra gebs-1 x IBON93/91) and released in 2006 for mid and high altitude areas. The three consecutive years’ (2002-2004) tests proved its superiority in grain yield performance, stability, and wide adaptation. It has good physical grain quality, resistance to leaf rust and scald, moderate resistance to net and spot blotch, lodging tolerance, and good biomass yield. The variety’s agronomic and quality merits and better performance than the checks makes it dependable for similar agro-ecologies considered in the study.
